Baked Ranchero EggsPosted: July 16, 2016
Good morning all! I’m so sorry that I’ve been MIA recently. Things have been a little crazy over here. We’ve had kitchen renos done! Yay! We now have direct access to the back yard through a sliding patio door, as well as a more open kitchen with a hole in the wall leading between the dining room and kitchen. We also had some more counter space and cabinetry installed. I love it. I am so happy that we finally invested in a more functional kitchen!!
This recipe is from the great Deb Perelman from Smitten Kitchen. I bought her cookbook when it came out and have loved making the delicious recipes therein. For father’s day last month, I asked Justin to peruse my cookbooks and choose a breakfast recipe. He settled on Baked Ranchero Eggs from the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. Hmmmm.
First things first, I roasted a can of diced tomatoes.

You will need
1 large can of diced tomatoes (or fire-roasted tomatoes. This will save you a step!)
1 medium white onion
2 garlic cloves
salt and pepper to taste
1 can black beans
1 cup jack cheese
Chopped fresh cilantro
Begin by roasting the tomatoes at 350 for 30 mins, if you weren’t able to find fire-roasted tomatoes. Transfer to a food processor. Add onion, salt and pepper and garlic and blend until smooth. Transfer to a skillet. Add black beans. Cook for 15 mins on medium-low. Add eggs ad cover. Cook until still very soft. Add jack cheese and broil on high for 5 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and browned. Top with sour cream, lime juice and cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
